The Hopman Cup XXVIII was the 28th edition of the Hopman Cup tournament between nations in men's and women's tennis. It took place at the Perth Arena in Perth, Australia.

Eight teams competed for the title, with two round robin groups of four, from which the top team of each group advanced to the final. For the first time, there were two Australian teams, Australia Gold (representing 25 and under) and Australia Green (representing the veterans). The original full line-up of entrants was announced in October.[1][2] Originally, Lleyton Hewitt and Casey Dellacqua were supposed to represent Australia Gold, but Dellacqua was replaced by Jarmila Wolfe.[3] Other replacements are Kenny de Schepper for Gaël Monfils in the French team, Karolína Plí?ková for Lucie ?afá?ová in the Czech team.

The 2015 champions Poland did not return to defend their title.[4] The competition was won by Australia Green.[5][6]
